I'm A Poet

I'm a poet, though I can't say that I'm good
Cuz I can always find those better than me
I have low esteem, lower than most
But it can't stop me from writing poetry

I wish to be different, I wish to be you
I wish to sink lower to the ocean blue

But I'm not suicidal, I love my life
Even though it can be full of endless strife

I love to write, I do it day and night
Seldom do I travel without a pen
For what would happen if I got an idea
without a pen I would lose it right then

Though I'd like to be different, I still love myself
And it takes all of me not to sit on a shelf

I listen to music, it's my inspiration
and will continue to be till my life has begun

    Great piece! I find it intriguing how similar one can feel to another just by reading their work. Thank you for the kind words, you opened my eyes to how connected in our emotions we all are. Keep writing

    Hi J. thanks for your visit and kind words; I might never have found you otheerwise. You don't need to compare yourself to others, your gift is to share what you have to say. Being a unique human being, I'm sure I will enjoy what you write. Loved this one! :)
